It would be nice if we could access e.g. Simple Entry Tool using a shortcut (e.g. Ctrl+Alt+S).
Finale's Master Tool dialogue box allows you to set customized shortcuts for your tools. I'd recommend checking this portion of our user manual for specifics on that process :)
Windows users can program F2 - F12
Program a keyboard equivalent for a tool Press SHIFT+Function key (F2-F12)
Switch to a tool you’ve programmed Press Function key (F2-F12)
I just verified in Win10 on a Surface with Finale 25.5
I selected the Staff tool.
Press Shift + F2 to program the F2 key to Staff Tool
I then selected the Articulation Tool
Press Shift + F3 to program the F3 key to Articulation Tool
Now, press F2 to select the Staff Tool and then press F3 to select Articulation tool
Repeat for F4 through F12. F1 is reserved for Help.
Your mileage may vary depending on your QWERTY keyboard and how the Function row is programmed.
I'm on a Mac with 25.5 and although I admit to being not the most intelligent person on this planet, I think the way of assigning keyboard shortcuts (in this case, I'd like a press of one key such as F15 for Simple Entry) seems tremendously unintuitive and unnecessarily complicated.
Or am I missing something (apart from brain cells)?
